Jane has an exemplary record with Juhudi Kilimo, having recently completed repayment of her second loan of 80,000KES. She is now requesting another loan of 80,000KES from Juhudi to purchase a dairy cow. Jane says that the income from this loan will enable her to pay school fees for her children and improve their heath since she will be able to provide them with enough milk.
In the future she expects to acquire six dairy cows, a goal that will help her to establish dairy farming as her major business.
